July 10, 2012 Leave a comment
Donald Trump, the larger than life US tycoon, struck the first ball on his new Scottish golf course today.
• Donald Trump opened the golf course with Colin Montgomerie and Paul Lawrie
• Menie development sparked a long-running row with environmentalists
• Future of proposed offshore wind farm to be decided by Scottish ministers
The tycoon was piped to the first hole of the Aberdeenshire course and teed off with former Ryder Cup captain Colin Montgomerie, who said it was an “honour” to play the first round on the “marvel” of a course.
Sandy Jones, chief executive of the PGA, and George O’Grady, chief executive of the European Tour, said they would work to bring major golf events to the course.
Regardless of what your thoughts on the tycoon – the pictures (taken by legendary golf photographer Brian Morgan) portray the course to certainly look like one of the world leading links golf courses. What do you think?
